Outcome-driven, strategic talent solutions

We empower you to develop inclusive and scalable talent programs that allow your high-growth organization to thrive.

Diverse Group Cheering
 

The world of work is dramatically changing. 

There is a renewed importance of corporate responsibility -- to employees, consumers, vendors, the environment and beyond. The expansion of the gig economy is uprooting our ideals of the 9-5. Remote and blended workforces are complicating organizational behavior, culture, and procedures. 

It is more challenging now than ever to sustain an agile and nimble workforce that can endure and scale in our disruptive, dynamic digital-age.


The time for revolutionizing the workplace is now. 

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. 

   - Desmond Tutu

As champions for the future of work, we build talent management capability that aligns with your organization’s business objectives to enable your high-growth organizations to thrive. Imagine a workplace that is equitable and harmonious and where authenticity is the status quo. Employee satisfaction and wellbeing are paramount to organizational culture, and diversity & empathy are synonymous with your employer branding. 


Without these specific elements embedded into its DNA, your organization runs the risk of alienating specific groups of employees and turning away top talent.

The Work We Do

In our careers we’ve seen that conventional corporate talent & diversity programs haven’t made nearly enough progress. Workplaces aren’t equitable enough in terms of representation, opportunity, leadership, and pay. Employee perks often exclude marginalized groups. Recruitment, onboarding, and performance management programs fail to take into account the full person. 


We work to build inclusion into the bones of any organization to help them arrive at the future of work faster - where contributors thrive in equitable and inclusive environments that foster incredible innovation. This includes work in: 


Talent Process Building

Recruiting and onboarding process workflows, employee engagement and retention, workforce mobility planning, remote and blended workforce capabilities and providing access to underrepresented pipelines and full-cycle recruitment for your most difficult engineering roles


Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Programs

Program building for inclusive talent & recruiting strategies and building robust and sustainable initiatives and training for Interviewer, Bias, Behavioral Interviewing, and Hiring Manager Enablement
